GEO organises symposia. The first was in May 2004, there has been one every year since then – the most recent in May 2011. The programmes included workshops for total beginners and for the more advanced users of MSG-1. Full details are published in the GEO Quarterly and the groups website.

The quarterly GEO magazine features colour images, advice and commentary about the latest Earth imaging satellites and other developments. Thirty one issues have been published so far – the next is due in June 2012. Other resources available to new members are computer software, equipment advice and support from other members.
